Irvine, CA, August 13, 2013 - uParts, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based electronic parts procurement solutions announced today the full integration of Pride Auto Body and its six locations in Southern California.

"We are excited to deploy uParts to all of our repair facilities. Pride's team members are already realizing the benefits of increased efficiency and transparency from the uParts platform. Our customers, insurance partners, team members and even our suppliers benefit from this powerful platform," stated Randy Stabler, President of Pride Auto Body.

"We are proud to partner with one of the most progressive MSOs in the country, Pride Auto Body. Having a repair group as sophisticated as Pride Auto Body utilize our platform in all of its locations confirms our strategy that only an unbiased procurement platform, one that is not owned by the manufacturers, suppliers or insurance companies can deliver value to all stakeholders," stated uParts President, Michael Quinn.
